Rising Damp Insurance

Rentokil Insurance provides insurance protection against the worrying problem and risks associated with a rising damp issue. We insure both residential and commercial properties, covering a full range of properties from flats, terraced houses and mansions, to shops, offices and factories.

Rising damp is the capillary rise of water from the ground upwards into the walls of a building. The quicker the signs of rising damp are spotted the quicker remedial action can be taken. However, rising damp is a slow process and it may be present in a building for several years before any signs of a problem appear. Having an insurance contingency against such a problem is always beneficial.
